You may have heard about vape pens and cartridges but are unsure where to start. As the marijuana industry continues to manufacture new and exciting products, it’s worth taking a closer look at vaping’s simple and convenient way to enjoy the mind-altering effects of cannabis. Vape pens and cartridges offer marijuana fans and newbies a wide selection of flavor profiles and THC dosages for every taste.

There are many reasons why vape pens have grown in popularity over the last few years. They are convenient, easy to use, and even offer designer styles, colors, and features to complement your look. It’s not just about getting high; vape pens provide a level of sophistication that elevates cannabis smoking. Read on to learn everything you need to know to choose the best vape pen and cartridge to fit your lifestyle.

What are vaporizer pens & carts?

A cartridge or pod is a small tank that’s pre-filled with cannabis oil and attached to a vape pen. At the press of a button, a mechanism gently heats the oil to produce a cool mist. When you inhale this mist, the THC goes to your lungs, bloodstream, and brain to quickly make the mind-altering effects you crave. Although most cartridges contain concentrated amounts of THC, you can also find some with CBD or other cannabinoids that won’t get you high but offer medicinal benefits. 

You can buy disposable cannabis vape pens that are ready to use straight out of the package. This is the most easy-to-use option since no cartridge or pod assembly is required. For more advanced users, reusable cartridges and pod systems may be the way to make the most of a longer-term investment. For these cannabis vape pens, you’ll need to clean them out regularly to maintain proper functioning and seamless use.

What’s the difference between vape pens and carts?

Disposable vape pens are already pre-assembled with cannabis oil so that you can enjoy them right out of the dispensary. The cartridge system is a little more complex because you must attach the oil chamber to the pen and regularly maintain the device to ensure proper functioning.

Which system is best?

Whether you opt for a disposable vape pen or cartridge system comes down to a few factors, including cost, design, and convenience. While the disposable vape pen is cheaper than the cartridge system, you cannot recharge it. If you buy them frequently, they can be more costly than investing in a reusable cartridge. 

You may also want to take into consideration style and design. Today’s selection of vape pens offers cylinder designs that resemble the look of a cigarette or cartridges that are flat and slick like a USB key.

What’s the difference between disposable and reusable cannabis vape pens?

Disposable vape pens are small, discreet, and easily fit in your pocket. To release the THC vapor, you either press a button on the pen or inhale to trigger the mist. These types of pens are the most convenient and ideal for users who want to try a new way of enjoying cannabis without investing in any more equipment. You can find them in several stylish designs to match your style.

Reusable vape pens work similarly to disposable ones, but you must insert a new cartridge every time the cannabis oil runs out. Although some assembly is required, some people prefer this system because it offers a more personalized experience by swapping out carts to your preference. You can also enjoy more features, such as a rechargeable battery and LED lights.

What’s the difference between cartridges?

Cartridges come in a variety of flavors, strengths, and cannabinoid combinations. Don’t be shy to discuss your needs with your local budtender to find the best match for your tolerance and desired effects. Some people want a quick high with concentrated THC, while others may be interested in managing pain with a CBD-heavy cocktail. Explore the different types of cartridges on the market and see what works for you.

Why try vape pens and carts?

There are many benefits to using cannabis vape pens and carts as opposed to other means of enjoying marijuana. They are less harmful to your lungs than smoking a joint, and they release a set dosage of cannabinoids, which can help you regulate your intake. That’s one of the reasons they appeal so much to newbies who don’t want to take too much and those looking to benefit from the medicinal side of CBC and other cannabinoids. 

Vape pens are a great addition to your other ways of enjoying marijuana because they offer a convenient on-the-go option that’s easy and discreet. Since some vape pens don’t even give off a marijuana smell, they are difficult to set apart from e-cigarettes. Plus, you can rely on them to quickly enjoy the effects you’re looking for, since the vapor you inhale goes to your lungs, bloodstream, and brain in a matter of minutes.

What’s the experience like of using vape pens and carts?

How do the effects of vape pens compare to other cannabis products?

Although they are quick to get you high, like smoking a joint, the effects do not last as long as edibles, usually only one to two hours. Plus, due to the controlled dosing, the high is generally not as strong as other means of partaking in marijuana. But, using a vape pen is extremely easy, as it only requires pressing a button and inhaling the cool mist. This can appeal to those turned off by the smell, taste, and feeling of inhaling hot smoke from a joint.

What’s the dosage?

The ideal dosage for you depends on factors such as gender, weight, THC consumption frequency, and how you plan on consuming cannabis. If you have a low tolerance or are new to vape pens, start with a small dosage and see how you like it. Remember, the cannabis experience is entirely your own, so you must see what works best for you. Please speak with your local budtender about their recommended options based on your situation and lifestyle.

What sets them apart?

Convenience is one of the biggest pros to trying vape pens. Because of their discreet, portable nature, they are famous for those who want to partake on the go without necessarily smelling like marijuana. The quick high offers you the effects you’re looking for without fuss.

Which to choose?

Although disposable pens are cheaper, they add up over time. Start with a disposable pen, and if you like the experience, consider investing in a cartridge system. Don’t be afraid to try something new to elevate your cannabis experience.


Now that you know a little more about cannabis flower, what it is, the endless varieties, and how it is transformed into various products, you can feel more confident next time you walk into your local dispensary. There are no right or wrong questions, only curiosity and willingness to learn. Enjoy the trip!
